I have SO much to share with you guys this week……..hope you don’t get sick of hearing from me! haha
I had a family that I wanted to send a thank you to…….and what better way than with cookies!! (I’ll explain all of that in another post!)
I have to tell you………I LOVED how easy it was and how pretty it made my cookies look!!
I still like the taste of Royal Icing better, but it’s nice to have this option for something quick.
I covered some in fondant and others in royal icing.
Can you tell which ones are covered in fondant?
I’ve also tweaked my butter cookie recipe a bit, here’s what I’m currently using:
- 6 Cups Unbleached Flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Cup butter (NOT margarine – I use salted butter)
- 1-1/2 Cup C&H sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 Tbsp milk
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp pure almond extract
- Combine flour, backing powder and salt and set aside.
- Cream sugar and butter, then add eggs and extracts.
- Slowly add the flour mixture and beat until combined.
- Roll out and cut (see my video tutorial for Rolling Cookie Dough)
- Bake in preheated oven at 350° for 10-12 mins
- Decorate with royal icing or fondant.
Cookie cutters from Sweet Baking Supply, and some I had
I recently started using CK Meringue Powder for my Royal Icing and I’m getting much better results.
Best result with Americolor Solft Gel Food Paste for coloring
